Had a great time at Luiz's. He's super nice and the room was nice a big, though decorated pretty old school. Feels like you're staying at a friend's house, which has it's own charm. The facilities were very clean and the breakfast was simple, but delicious, with lots of fresh fruit and fresh squeezed juice. The place is located on a very busy corner with a restaurant right below, so it's pretty noisy at night, but I had no issues closing the windows and falling asleep. I felt very safe in the neighborhood and you're on the beach in 5 min walking. There is also a supermarket diagonally across, which is great for picking up some fruit, snacks and drinks, which can be prepared in the kitchen. The only thing that's not convenient is that the place is not always staffed, so when I accidentally left my keys in my room, I wasn't able to call anyone -- luckily the other guests were in, so it was all fine in the end. I would come back here for sure.
